How we can improve maternal healthcare – before, during and after pregnancy

Every year in the United States, over 60,000 women suffer a severe, life-altering complication during childbirth, and 700 to 900 women die from a pregnancy related cause. Elizabeth Howell, OBGYN and expert on maternal health, explains that these complications, often resulting from treatable ailments like blood clots and hemorrhages, are far too preventable to produce such staggering outcomes. Even more shocking is the clear racial disparity to these outcomes, as black women are 3 to 4 times more likely to suffer a pregnancy related death than white women, even when controlling for social factors. Elizabeth believes that, to permanently mend this gap, every hospital must adopt standardized procedures to assure high quality maternal health care from contraception to post-pregnancy. 

Elizabeth is leading the way to make high quality care at childbirth a standard practice for every mother. Watch Elizabeth’s TEDMED 2018 Talk to discover how preparing for preventable complications, addressing racial bias in care, and educating and supporting mothers throughout pregnancy can save countless lives each day.

Reflections on Storytelling in Healthcare with Dr. Verna Yiu

CEO of Alberta Health Services, Dr. Verna Yiu, reflects on why she thinks Storytelling is a very important part of the future of health care in Alberta. Dr. Yiu explains how sharing stories can help health care providers gain a greater understanding what matters to patients and their families while at the same time helping us reflect on our experiences of providing care. In the end we are all patients and family members, and stories remind us that we are in this together.
